E.J. Langley Poems
It's Not All Bad
After All This Time
Hearts are broken everyday and I console myself in this
What would a scream look like on paper? If I could write a scream I'd have something!
The feeling at the heart of things is the infinite reality of poetry It reasons the perspectives are boundless
Mozart (Bless His Silly Heart)
Mozart plays pool on the far table by the window Still mourning the death of his father his great mass is pounding in his head
The Last Day Flower
Who ignored the sunshine down to the very last day flower in motor cars with gasoline
I remind myself that I've already done the hardest thing. That I can't share my peace with those of whom my sickness has tarnished is in part the cost. I must bare this and remember who and what I was.
It Could Be Worse
The cold bite in the air is a grim reminder that I'm here and not there. With a heavy heart I'm here, back here. Back to my life and not there. 'It could always be worse' they say.
Rats On Acid
I am the sidewalk I am the dog
Sunday March 22nd 1998 Vancouver
'You just don't love me enough! ' she says (for years now it seems) and walks away
The sweet glow of sweat on a warm full breast A thin cotton dress hugs so perfectly her nimble form
The Other Souls
I am just a soul standing among other souls Trapped in the baggage of birth
The sirens sing to each other in the street from asphalt to ambush they echo the cry of the fallen soldier
The feeling at the heart of things
is the infinite reality of poetry
It reasons the perspectives are boundless
and evasive to the page
While the muse may treat us to a phrase or two
the rest is fodder
and unworthy of the night
